What You Can Expect During Hospital Discharge
To help you plan your discharge from the hospital, you will be given an estimated date for discharge within 24 hours of your admission. We try our best to discharge all patients by noon on the day you are due to leave hospital.
You will be expected to settle your hospital bill before leaving to go home.
Our pharmacy can provide any medicines that have been prescribed for you to take home.
You may be provided with relevant instructions and information leaflets (e.g. diet, medications, wound care) for you to follow at home.
You may be provided with equipment specific to your aftercare.
If you have had surgery that requires regular dressing care, are on IV medications or require continued care at home, you could be eligible for Home Health Care services. Please ask your doctor about this service at the time of discharge.
If you are an elderly patient or you have a long term illness, are living with an incurable disease, recovering from surgery, have special needs, are confined to their your bed or need palliative care, you may wish to consider Home Health Care services.
Make sure you take all your items including any valuables and money home with you.
You will receive a medical certificate stating that you have been discharged from the Hospital.
Our staff will schedule a follow up appointment for you to return to see the doctor in the clinic if necessary.
You will be expected to make your own transport arrangements to go home. Our staff will inform you if there is a specific medical need and you require an ambulance service to take you home.
We wish you a comfortable hospital stay and speedy recovery.
